Near Maunawili, Hawaii — A view north-northwest from the Nu‘uanu Pali Lookout from Oahu’s windward cliffs toward the Koʻolau Range. In the distance below is the area around Kahaluu.

This locale is mentioned nostalgically in the beautiful song by Jerry Santos on Olomana‘s Like a Seabird album, “Ku’u Home O Kahalu’u”:

I remember days when we were younger
We used to catch ‘o’opu in the mountain stream
‘Round the Ko’olau hills we’d ride on horseback
So long ago it seems it was a dream
Last night I dreamt I was returning
and my heart called out to you
But I fear you won’t be like I left you
Me kealoha ku’u home o Kahaluu
